TDKR: Sir Michael Caine Reveals Alfred's Back-Story In New Interview
Well, it's actually Caine's own invented back-story for Bruce Wayne's faithful butler, but it's a good one! In a brand new interview to celebrate the home release of The Dark Knight Rises, the veteran actor also talks about Christopher Nolan's directing style..
We never get to find out too much about Alfred's past in Christopher Nolan's batman trilogy, aside from a few hints here and there (we know he was ex Special Forces for example) so in the following interview snippet released by Warner Bros UK, we hear for the first time the actor's invented back-story for the character, and how he came to be in the service of the Wayne family..
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer.
